Hi Debra,
Thank you for sharing your MS story - I can certainly relate. I was inspired to write Love Sick because when I was told I had MS I was 28 and single and suddenly felt that I was unlovable. While I now know this to be untrue, I dated plenty of men who made it quite clear that this was true for them, so I wrote about those tales along with the countless MRIs, the variety of tests and the endless doctor appointments. I wrote my truth because I knew I couldn't be alone in my journey and by reading your brief story I already know that I am not. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me. I hope that you are as healthy as can be and that my story will inspire you or at the very least make you laugh. Happy reading!
Much love,
Cory(less)

Then write again. Then live some more. Then keep writing. The biggest piece of advice a teacher ever gave me was to write from experience, but if you're stuck behind your computer all day then what kind of experience will you have to draw from? That's why I say you must live your life to its most extreme, live in the places you always dreamed of, let your imagination run wild, say yes to all opportunity, be open to change and the impossible. If you can do all this and still have that dying urge to continue to write then you know you're on the right path. (less)

Cory Martin liked a quote
The Outsider by Cory Martin
“- Ich gehöre einfach nicht richtig hierher.
- Ich glaube, ich muss dir was erklären: Das tut eigentlich keiner. Ich garantiere dir, dass jedem Einzelnen auf diesem Ball nicht ganz wohl in seiner Haut ist. Sie haben alle ihre Geheimnisse und zittern davor, dass die anderen ihnen auf die Schliche kommen.
- Das muss ja großen Spaß machen. - bemerkte Ryan und dachte an die Geheimnisse, von denen er wusste. Luke und Nikki. Marisas Vater.
- Die haben einen der schönsten Plätze der Welt genommen und ein richtiges Gefängnis daraus gemacht.”

“Hey, hör mal zu! Ich habe nicht viel im Leben gelernt. Und dir auch nicht viel beigebracht. Aber eins weiß ich ganz genau: Träume gehen niemals in Erfüllung!”
Cory Martin, The Outsider

“And now I'm wondering, is this what happens with MS? Does it just become a sequence of demolition to the body? Like a pattern of dating the wrong guys, slowly breaking you down until you're a shell of your old existence?”
Cory Martin, Love Sick
